The starting point for design is user comfort.
Plamen van Dijk Design Studio designs with a passion for sustainability, circularity and innovation.
The studio is driven to make a real contribution to reduce our ecological footprint with sustainable designs. Among other aspects, sustainability is about responsible and degradable/reusable materials as well as products and materials that last a lifetime.
At Plamen van Dijk Design Studio we love natural materials.
Whenever possible, we like to use materials that are recycled, upcycled or suitable for this purpose due to their composition.
In this way, we contribute to a more sustainable planet with you and breathe new life into many of these materials.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals to make the world a better place by 2030. The SDGs were agreed upon by countries affiliated with the United Nations (UN), including the Netherlands. The goals came about based on global input from organizations and individuals.
Time for recycling
Our design studio works with certified suppliers of sustainable products and materials whenever possible.
Many of these products such as loose furniture can be recycled or upcycled after use.
We use collective expertise and focus on achieving the smallest possible footprint with the lowest possible CO2 emissions.
The studio likes to cooperate as much as possible with parties near the project site. Time savings, short lines of communication, less traffic, less pollution and, ultimately, faster turnaround provide benefits in several ways.
Biophilic design is a concept used within the construction and interior design industries. Biophilic design enhances the contact between humans and nature by incorporating elements of nature into the living environment.
Research shows that contact with nature increases happiness and reduces stress. It promotes vitality, creativity and encourages encounters between people.
We strive to apply biophilic design in our projects.
The obvious application of biophilic design for interior spaces is the addition of plants, but that's just the beginning. The use of natural forms, patterns and processes is just as powerful. The presence of light, air and water are also conducive.
